International Desk: Australia's Rudi Browning has been crowned the overall champion at the World Drone Racing Championships in the Chinese city of Shenzhen.

The 15-year-old beat over 127 other competitors of all ages from across the world to clinch the title as the four-day championship came to a close on Sunday.

Event organisers the Federation Aeronautique Internationale (FAI), also known as the World Air Sports Federation, said Browning will take home a US$24,000 ($33,350) winner's cheque, along with his gold medal.

Browning took out the final in front of more than 10,000 drone-mad fans at the Shenzhen Universiade Centre Stadium, according to Chinese state media agency Xinhua.

"I'm still shaking actually."

Australia also took out the team title, beating Sweden and South Korea who received silver and bronze medals respectively.

"I'm very proud of the boys," Australia's team manager David Crepaldi said._ABC
